Re: Top Bf 109 aces

Good afternoon Gentlemen,

currently I'm working through OSPREY's "Jagdgeschwader 52" by John Weal. Already on page 4 he makes a statement about what Bf109 subtype Erich Hartmann flew on 8May1945: "...At least one offical document states quite categorically that JG 52 was equipped entirely with the Bf109G-14 (of various models), and was earmarked for conversion to K-4's.... But there are at least two known photographs of what are, undeniably, the remains of a K-4 amonst the wreckage abandoned at Deutsch-Brod carrying [a tulip leaf decoration]."

Kind regards,

Michael
